Kuwait court refuses to recognise sex change

Sexual HealthMar 21, 06

Kuwait’s highest court has upheld a ruling refusing to recognise as female a man who underwent sex-change surgery almost six years ago, judicial sources said on Tuesday.

They told Reuters the court late on Monday upheld a lower court’s ruling against Kuwaiti national Ahmed Dousari, in his 30s, barring any official recognition of his new gender.

Dousari underwent the procedure in 2000 in Bangkok and changed his name to Amal (Arabic for hope) after returning home.

Dousari’s landmark petition for recognition was upheld by a court in 2004 based on medical reports and forensic examination.

But the ruling was overturned on appeal the same year after Islamist lawyers and political activists opposed the judgment, saying it would open the door for more such operations, which they consider immoral.
